If the needle on a gas gauge points to "F" and no one is around to see it, does it mean the gas tank is full? This is not supposed to be a trick question, and the answer is: maybe. Or so Lauren Klemm discovered recently when she rented a U-Haul cargo van on Falls Road in Baltimore. After filling the van up with almost three gallons of gas for $10.09, Klemm and her dad dropped the van off at the U-Haul store after closing time and left the key in a drop box. Days later, the 25-year-old graduate student checked her bank account to discover that U-Haul charged her $32.25 on top of the $80 she'd already paid.

Shares of Amerco Inc., owner of the U-Haul truck-rental service, rose 72 percent yesterday, three days after the company filed for bankruptcy protection, listing more assets than debt. The shares rose $2.93 to $7.01 in Nasdaq stock market trading. Amerco listed $1.04 billion in assets and $884 million of debt in a Chapter 11 filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Reno, Nev. "Even in liquidation and paying off its debts, the company is worth $10 a share to investors," said Roth Capital Partners analyst Ian Gilson, who raised his recommendation on the stock to "strong buy" from "buy."

Looks like Marylanders threatening to leave the state over tax increases have one less place to go. Delaware, long the darling of anti-tax types in the Free State, just wrapped up work on closing an $800 million hole in its budget - no mean feat considering the whole thing is just over $3 billion. Gov. Jack Markell pushed for steep budget cuts but also about $200 million a year in tax increases. That comes out to about $229 per person. He increased the state's gross receipts tax to about 2.1 percent and the income tax on top earners to 6.95 percent.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Marissa Sternberg sits in her wheelchair, barely able to move or speak. Caregivers are always at her side. Progress is measured in tiny steps: an unclenched fist, a look of recognition, a smile for her father. Nearly four years ago, Sternberg was a high-spirited 19-year-old bound for veterinary school in Denver. She rented a U-Haul trailer to move her belongings, hitched it to her Toyota Land Cruiser and hit the road with her two dogs and a friend. That evening, as the Land Cruiser descended a hill in the Chihuahuan desert of New Mexico, the trailer began to swing from side to side, pushing the sport utility vehicle as if trying to muscle it off the road.

Here's part of a Q&A with Jeff Ermann of TurtleSportsReport.com: With the news that Maryland is not a part of Terrence Jennings' top five, have the Terps stopped recruiting the big man? If that's the case, what went wrong here? And what do you make of him leaving Mount Zion for Notre Dame Prep? No, the staff is still actively pursuing, it seems. As to what went wrong here, well, that's a long [story]. Jennings is a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a middle-of-the-night when-the-coach-isn't-looking high school transfer.

During graduate school and my first year in the working world, I moved five times. I hopped apartments as cheaper rent opportunities surfaced, and my parents kindly offered their van and muscle power to get my things from one place to the next. Good thing. As anyone who has moved knows, it can cost a small fortune to pack up and move to a different home. Just schlepping from a one-bedroom apartment in New York to another in Boston could run $2,700 to $3,200 if you hire professional movers, according to the American Moving and Storage Association.

BOSTON -- It is 8: 30 in the morning and I am standing at a gas station in a silk suit with an unusual fashion accessory dangling from my right hand: a gasoline hose.I am poised (for disaster) at this petroleum establishment which boasts of ''self-service'' -- which is to say, no service, because there is no longer any station on my corner which has ''full service,'' which is to say, any service.At precisely 8: 33, the hose balks, the gas leaps from its point of destination and proceeds to decorate my skirt in a fashion familiar to Jackson Pollack fans.

SILOPI, Turkey - A busload of anti-war protesters and a small group of American soldiers ran into each other on a lonely stretch of roadside north of here yesterday, near the border with Iraq. It was an odd, awkward meeting between one group hoping to stop a war, and another, perhaps, planning for the start of one. Both halted at a military checkpoint, about 50 yards apart. The Americans, escorted by an armored vehicle, were guests of the military and apparently engaged in surveying the road to Iraq.
